The Gunslinger game is made up of 5 reels, each one 3 symbols high. There are 25 paylines, playing from left to right, excluding Scatters.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Gunslinger”, substituting for all symbols other than Bonus, Scatter and Free Spin symbols. A combination of 5 Wild “Gun Slinger” symbols is worth up to 10000 times the bet.
Scatter – The Scatter symbol is the “White Horse”. Two scatters will pay twice the bet, three will pay 3 times the bet, 4 will pay 20 times the bet and 5 will pay 200 times the bet.
Bonus – The Bonus symbol is the “Wanted Poster”.
Free Spins – The Free Spins symbol is the “Whiskey Bottle”.
You get free spins in this game if you can reveal 3 or more of the “Whiskey Bottle” symbols in a single spin. When this happens, the bottles raise themselves out from the reels and you get to test your gunslinging skills by choosing one of them to shoot. The smashed bottle will then reveal a random number of free spins. All wins are doubled and you have the chance to re-trigger free spins during the feature.
The game’s main bonus is triggered when you collect three of the “Wanted Poster” symbols. As the bonus is triggered the 3 symbols will float from the reels and appear on a new screen. You then get to choose the bandit that you want to hunt down. The screen will shift and you’ll be standing at one end of a street in a town straight out of an old Western. You walk down the street shooting barrels and winning coins as you do so. When you get to the end of the street your chosen bandit will walk out of the saloon and face you. You have to choose which of the three moves you think the bandit will use during your shoot out. Guess correctly and you shoot him dead, winning a large number of coins in the process. Get it wrong and your screen will turn red and the bonus will be over.
The game also has a collect feature where you need to gather win combinations using the poker card symbols. A win on the 10 symbol will light up the 10 in the poker hand in the top right of the screen. A win on the Jack symbol will do the same, and so on up to the Ace symbol. Once you have collected your Royal Flush a set of cards will appear face down on the screen and you’ll click on each one to reveal what prize the card holds. There will be a combination of coin wins and sheriff badges. However, there is a chance that all five of the cards will reveal sheriff badges. If this happens you will win the game’s big jackpot.
